Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

A tranquil space of productivity--so nice to have a sneak peek :-)

The portrait line drawing - is that recent? Beautiful!
I've commented already about the iceland drawings so I won't repeat myself.
Nice to see the space where you work.

Thanks, Karyn. And thank you Natalie. The portrait is of my mother, done long ago, but I've always liked it and kept it with me, usually up somewhere in my studio spaces. Not a deliberately accurate likeness, but it conveys her stillness and strength, and a certain reserved elegance she always had.

I love the drawings - strong and individual - and especially the portrait, with its elegant linear quality plus faint tone.

I love seeing your works again and their scale, in your studio, which I remember with pleasure.

Ah, this gives an impression of the scale of those drawings. Makes me wish this photograph was a porthole through which I could magically enter that space.

that is so much fun to see and intriguing, too.

Oh, I like this peek--and to have along with it a sense of scale and your secret place.
